Is your Netgear WiFi extender not getting the WAN parameters? If so, the pre-condition is to make sure the internet works better. The second is to check the computer. It should connect directly to the Mywifiext.local WIFI Network. Connect them beside the Setup Netgear Extender. Have you got a red message stating that the WAN port is unplugged on the router’s status page? It shows that the modem and the range extender have not plugged properly into the WAN port of your router. Please plugin them properly to get the full connection
Clone the MAC address for your PC
- When we access the Mywifiext.net login page for the first time, some ISPs will register our MAC address through our computer to their Cable modem.
- In this scenario, if we add our router to our network connection, the internet service providers will not accept it.
- You have to clone the MAC address of the router and the Netgear WiFi extender.
- To clone the MAC address of the router/Extender, connect the computer to your Setup Netgear extender device through the router.
- Log into the Mywifiext.net Administrative management and click at Network>MAC Clone on the left of the modem.
- Tap at [Clone MAC Address]. It will clone the MAC address of your PC to the WAN MAC address of the router/extender.
Change the default Mywifiext local LAN IP address
Most of the range Extender use 192.168.1.250 or 192.168.0.250 as their default LAN IP address. It is the main reason for the conflict with the IP range of your current Setup Netgear extender page. That is why the router cannot connect with the WIFI extender. It will also prohibit you from accessing the internet. The best option is to change the LAN IP address of the WIFI extender to solve this recurring issue. Go to the NETWORK, then to LAN on the left of the menu bar. Here, change the IP address to another one. Save the settings now.
